    Wikipedia says Queen’s 1973 album was released on July 13th 1973. You have it listed as September 4th 1973. Just wanted to let you know so you can make the correction…

    • #2 by Dr. Rock on September 7, 2014 - 11:16 am

      It was released in the UK on July 13, 1973 on EMI. It was released in the US on September 4, 1973 on Elektra.
